Question about 2006 Toyota Prius

Open Question

I have a 2006 Toyota Prius (iTech). The left hand headlamp has blown and I need to replace the lamp. It looks like I have to remove the whole headlamp assembly (cant reach the rear socket) but can't see how to remove the assembly without dismantling the front of the car. Is there an easier way?

Why did my 2006 prius shut down while I was driving it


You should check to see how many "bars" of fuel you have left. A common issue with these is that the fuel sending unit goes bad, and will show you 1, 2, or 3 bars while the car has no gas. You may have run out of fuel. Even if you put new fuel in, some Prius models need to be reset by a Toyota dealer in order to make it driveable again. In some Prius models, the whole fuel tank would need replaced as the sending unit and tank is all one whole assembly. Some allow you to just purchase a new sending unit. You do also have a chance just paying a dealer for the diagnostic and having them reset the system for you. You will just have to remember to not let your "bars" get down to 2 or 3 bars. Hope this helps.

Prius headlights work only on highbeam


There should be separate fuses for high and low beams on a Prius. If one of your headlight bulbs is bad, it could have blown the low-beam fuse. Check for blown fuses behind driver's side headlight fuse panel. If new one blows, replace headlight bulbs and try again.

On 2004-2009 Prius, driver's side headlamp bulb can be replaced by removing hold down screws and folding fuse panel upward to access rear of headlight assembly. Large round cover with 3 tabs unscrews about 1/4 turn to remove. It's really tight and held by friction of large O-ring so it'll take some muscle but it will eventually give. Be careful replacing bulbs as metal clips can be easily installed incorrectly resulting in tilted headlight beam. 3-tabs must rest on flat surfaces on mounting area before spring clip can be latched in place. 3-prong plug can be wiggles sideways/up and down to remove from bulb.

How do you remove the head lamp assembly on a 1993


1. Make sure headlamp is off and open hood.
2. Taurus model years 1990-1999: you must remove the whole headlamp to replace the bulb. Not a horrible task. Just annoying.
3. Facing the driver's side headlamp, and looking at the headlamp itself, at clock positions 8, 11 and 1 are the headlight housing screws. They all look the same. Using a 10mm socket wrench, remove these 3 screws and set them aside.
4. Just to the right of the "11 o'clock" housing screw is a bolt (same hexagonal 10mm sized top as the housing screws). This just needs a few turns to loosen it.
5. Gently pull the whole headlight forward. Now you can get at the bulb.
6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb. Now the headlamp is free to work with. Remove the bulb, replace with a new bulb, make sure the bulb housing cylinder is in place and reconnect the electical.
7. Place headlamp back into position. Line up screw holes. Tighten the bolt. Replace housing screws and tighten.
8. Passenger side headlamp is mirror image of driver's side. Screws at 11, 1 and 4 o'clock positions. Bolt should be to the left of the "1 o'clock" housing screw.

This light indicates that at least 1 of your tires has lost 25% of its pressure. Check & inflate all tires to desired pressure then reset the sensor by pressing the button on the bottom left of the dash.

Warning light on dash says headlamps not leveling


There is an issue with the height control sensor on the Prius product. Is it still under warranty? If not, go back to the dealer and tell them that you want scheduled to see the District Service and Parts Operations Manager. When you meet with him/her, explain the situation, and the costs involved. He/she has the ability to grant "goodwill" assistance, and possibly help you out on the repair, with Toyota participating in some of the costs.
Can't hurt to try. More often than not, the DSPOMs are very flexible, and like to promote customer satisfaction.
